I guess the most expensive properties are at malbara hills. Went for a drive and see the huge houses with BMW and Mercedes parked outside. And dont miss the hanging garden.

The terrain of this place is soo good that you feel that you are outside of hustle and bustle of busy Mumbai. The priya darshini park is always a delight to be with kids.

Lovely place to walk around, on somewhat quieter streets, above the hustle & bustle of "downtown" Mumbai. A few parks, views down onto Marine Drive/Queen's Necklace, walkable residential streets, Banganga Tank, etc.
